This pattern was created in 1925 by Luc Lanel, a young ceramicist who designed many breathtaking pieces for Christofle during the period of their association. When the roaring Twenties followed the First World War, America had become the symbol of freedom and victory in the eyes of the French.
It was in homage to the country, which helped win the war, that Christofle baptized this pattern AMERICA. It is characterized by flat surfaces and angular, geometrical finish and finds its place not only on the tables of Art deco aficionados but also in very contemporary settings. AMERICA graces the tables of the famous Hotel Crillon in Paris. It is also the pattern of choice for many of the Air France operated hotels throughout the world.
